Unemployment Stomp

Last night I was reading a book called The Thirties: A Time To Remember and couldn't help but note (again) the many similarities (consumer debt, failing banks, plummeting stocks, rising unemployment, etc.). The thing that irks me is the spate of adamant assurances that prosperity is just around the corner, then and today. But in lieu of a diatribe I turn to more music and thought of this cd. For a collection of only 16 tracks, this is a really good sampling of songs of the Great Depression. This cd can still be purchased at www.newworldrecords.org and the really cool thing is that you can download (as a .pdf) the liner notes for their entire catalog! In this case, that means 36 pages. Enjoy. +
